While it wasn't a sluggish start, I didn't get out to a Cindy Klassen-like blistering start on this shawl. But I didn't panic at the countdown clock or when others were finishing ahead of me. I kept my composure and gave it all I had at the finish. It is my pleasure to present the Flirty Ruffles Shawl - Olympic Gold winner at these 2006 games.
And while the shawl is in excellent form, I needed the couple of hours sleep that were left before dawn.
There is little time for celebration as my next competition starts now. I have to complete the quint-coloured, fully-stranded fair isle sleeve and assemble the sweater for delivery in two days. Fortunately I am a life-time platinum card-carrying member of Team Caffeine. No worries Fiona!
